Our sponsored organization for ZooRun is Global Conservation Corps. GCC is an organization that works in two ways to improve conservation in Africa. The first is by supporting the Zululand Rhino Orphanage and the second is by helping to sponsor the future rangers program. Each registration helps to support these different programs and makes a great impact on spreading the message of conservation.

Over the last 2 years, we have sent over $30,000.00 to the GCC. With your help our goal is to send over $20,000 for our final year! Hope to see you there!
